Hi, I’m Dr. Uma Lerner. I’m a reproductive psychologist in SF.

I know a lot of people take birth control for different reasons besides preventing pregnancy. What are some of those reasons?

In addition to preventing pregnancy, you can take it for:

💢 painful periods or cramps

🩸 regulating periods or even just skipping a period

🥚 PCOS or polycystic ovarian syndrome

🏳️‍🌈 gender identity consolidation

🌋 treating acne

😰 prevention of migraines, and

😣 stability of mood.
